Tigers top Red Sox 6-5 after wild 8th inning

Around the Horn New Guys Help Lead Tigers Past Red Sox on Opening Day
Damon Campbell | 14 April, 2017, 16:23

Squaring off against former Cy Young Award victor Justin Verlander, Sale looked to be every bit as worthy of that honor himself. "They couldn't find any flights to Detroit until Monday, so he flew to Columbus and he's now in a auto". "We have a guy who can match up with him, but he's still Verlander and he's tough to score some runs off of".

"Thankfully our guys were able to battle against a guy who was on and pretty much nasty in Sale".

With the Boston Red Sox and Tigers knotted at one in the bottom of the eighth and Chris Sale trying to strand Andrew Romine on second base, the southpaw was forced to pick his poison: Ian Kinsler or Castellanos.

"You take three out of four from a team like that, that won (93 games) previous year".

"He's been hitting well for the past month and a half", manager Brad Ausmus said.

So, if you wanted Farrell to rhapsodize about a Sale-Verlander duel in Monday's series finale, no, the manager wasn't in the mood. The Indians suffered their first loss of the season, 7-3. The Tigers have won all five matchups between the two. He knew the margin of error was small, given how well Sale was pitching.

"I was able to use (Anibal) Sanchez, but he couldn't have gone far, because he threw 68 pitches a few days ago". Afford each of them something close to 700 plate appearances, and it's not unreasonable to think they could combine for 60 home runs. With Tyler Thornburg sidelined by a spring-training shoulder injury, Barnes has slightly more experience in a setup role than Heath Hembree or Joe Kelly. Cleveland looks like the clear favorite in the AL Central, but it's hard to identify the top challenger at this point, and the Twins have an early chance to state their case. The Denver native became the first starting pitcher to make his big league debut in his team's home opener in the state in which he was born since 1966. Bellino took a step toward the mound and yelled something back. James McCann also went deep for the Tigers. This season, he hopes to keep pitching that way every month.

"It was a big pitch in a big spot", Verlander said. The ball just felt chalky in my hand. "When I looked at it (later), it was 50-50".

"We let bygones be bygones. That was really the focus this offseason and coming into this season, what we've got to do to get back to the postseason and advance to the World Series". "It had nothing to do with him".

"Again, we saw it the other day, and we saw it again", Ausmus said. "Hitters generally aren't looking to swing the bat in a 2-0, 1-0, 2-1 count on the curveball".

Like Jordan Zimmermann on Saturday and Daniel Norris on Sunday, he soon settled in, retiring 11 straight from the fourth inning to the seventh, when he walked Brock Holt with two outs. The answer has never been anything but yes.

"It's a joke. He's making plays that I don't know if anybody else can make", Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia said. "If I didn't (feel OK), I'd be honest".

"Me and Torii Hunter, that was probably it", Kinsler said, referring back to 2014.
